I selected this program because it allows me to use my student loans to attend, otherwise I wouldn’t be able to have this experience. I also wanted a challenge and to improve my fluency as fast as possible. The pace at KCP is challenging but helps me focus.

Even students of the same country must converse in Japanese. I believe that this really encourages students to go through trial and error in order to express themselves beyond what they are used to.

I believed that it would allow me to wholisticly improve my Japanese because of its environment that focuses on helping the students to reach higher personal achievements and language proficiency levels.
